I'll PM you some images tomorrow. Glad I went this way especially for the rear. This system uses another foot to support the rear plates off the body of the vehicle. Reduces any vibration and rub marks on your vehicle.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Anyone have pics of wheels that are available on the SRT for Oz? I've searched and get mixed messages on options.

Also how do you guys find the foot hand brake?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Was told today by a dealer that the Kumho allseason tyres (solus Kl21) that come with ORAII are 'run flat' rated. Has anyone else been told this?

I did some searches on google and it doesn't seem to be the case. It would be good in theory if you got a flat tyre out in the bush and could get to a more suitable spot to do the change.

Also spent half the day at 3 dealers confirming my colour choice, almost got the billet silver but went back to my first love, Granite Crystal.

Laredo with QL, ORAII and Towbar ordered, now the 4 month wait.

You may need to check, but doesn't the Laredo come with Michelin tyres. I can't see anywhere where my Kumho says they are run flat capable.

Hi It4vette, try now I just checked mine and it's book n and sailing on the 16/07 in Freo 24/8.

Laredo has Michelins as standard.
ORA II pack makes this Kuhmo's for all models.

Download the Jeep MY14 Grand Cherokee Specifications Guide it shows pics, and will also give you the specs.

Standard rims are the 20" Goliaths, a no charge option to the Spider Monkey's is available.
I far prefer the look of the Spider Monkeys

Have a look at this website, the US SRT site - http://www.drivesrt.com/2014/grand-cherokee-srt/

i am sure some the Aus guys can tell you of any differences with the Aus spec.

Curious to know Has anyone else got a bit of a clunk/thud coming from the rear over bumps? I mentioned it at my first service and they said my wheel alignment was out and fixed it but the noise is there still there. Given the kms I travel (2600 in 10 days) I really need it not to be there, it's driving me bonkers.

Today I Took the tools and buckets out but that wasn't it and Looking at it just now decided I'm going to try and make the tyre more secure or padded as it has some movement in it and see if that is what the problem

Thanks Munars - that means yours is on the Tamerlane. I was hoping mine would get on that too, but I still get "no records found". It puzzles me a bit, that when I do a wildcard search on all GC VINs, I don't see any come up prior to their actual loading date, but obviously yours has, so I must be doing something wrong. Can you tell me what it shows as the "current status"?

While it is still early days, the SRT is only available with the Goliath chrome wheels or the silver spider monkey wheels (same as the SRT8 '11-13).
The pictures of the goliath are further up the page ans the spider monkey wheels can be seen on all the older SRT8's.
Unfortunatly the vapor spider monkey wheels (black chrome) are not an option ATM in Oz.

As for the foot brake, you get used to it, but I personally do not like it.

No the dealer is BS'ing you as only the SRT's come with run flats.
